Ghost Hunting Apps - Do They Really Work?

8 posts in this topic

In today's video I am going to be testing out the "Spirit Story Box". As always, most of these apps have the "For Entertainment Purposes Only" statement. Do these apps really work?

They're toys. 

Like anything software based people have decompiled them and what the apps do aren't all that remarkable.

From the whole software/programming/hardware aspect.. yes, those apps work like they are programmed to do. Just like your Itunes is programmed to play songs, or a star-map app shows the stars.

From the whole ghostly capture aspect.. no, the apps don't actually have ghost capture written into the code. Can't capture ghosts with any of the other various entertainment apps either.

One of them (I think it was Ghost Radar) was reverse engineered and it was, at its core, just a random number generator.   The ghosts appeared at random spots on the radar, at random times, just based upon numbers creator by a random number generator, and the words the ghost was supposedly communicating were just picked at random from a built in list of words.   People still believed it worked of course, even though it was clearly just a toy app that couldn't possibly find ghosts.

In the case of that app, it was written in such a way that the results and words were so vague and random, that confirmation bias would play a huge part in believers thinking that it actually worked.  As with a lot of things, people will interpret the gibberish it generates in a favourable light.

It bothers me that people would even consider that an app on their cellphone would be able to detect ghosts.

A program. On your phone. Detecting the undetectable unproven unknown. Think about it.
